Oasis 2017 – A Retreat For Women In Ministry

For more information and to register for the retreat, you can download the brochure HERE or CONTACT US.

The Theme for this year’s Oasis Retreat at Valley View Bible Camp is focused on restoring the joy of our salvation. Designed for women in ministry, our purpose for this retreat is to be renewed as we spend time in God’s Word, learning that in every season God has a plan and wants to show Himself to us. Whatever our circumstance may be, we can be renewed as God restores to us the salvation that He has so graciously given to us. Whether you are a full-time missionary, pastor’s wife, or serving in a support role, come for a weekend of rest and renewal as we look to God as our all in all.

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me. Psalm 51:10-12

Our speaker for the weekend will be Angela Kruse. We encourage you to read her bio below.

Angela grew up near Rosenort, Manitoba where she is currently living with her husband Rolf and five children. Angela has been a full-time missionary with SIM (Serving In Mission) for the past 20 years, serving in Sudanese refugee camps and among tribal people in Ethiopia.

Angela and her family returned to Manitoba last year for a sabbatical study year and to take time for rest and renewal after Angela and her husband experienced significant compassion fatigue. During this past year, Angela has been learning the necessity of soul care for spiritual and physical restoration.

Angela is passionate about sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with the least reached, and discipling women and young people into active ministry.

Angela loves being surrounded by God’s creation, times of solitude, and being actively engaged with her family in sports (swimming, biking, volleyball), in the home, in ministry, and in God’s Word. She loves freshly roasted coffee and cooking Ethiopian cuisine.

Anchored In Christ – A Mother Daughter Event

How can you trust God’s plan when your spouse is 27 and diagnosed with lymphoma, and you are 7 months pregnant with your first child? Both Corrina and Natasha have had that experience. How can God be good when your husband dies? Is He only good when your husband is healed? Come hear how Corrina and her daughter Natasha were “Anchored in Christ” through one of the greatest trials they both faced.

Corrina and her husband Darrell of 25 years live in Steinbach. They have four children, two children in law, and three grandchildren. She enjoys listening to a good audio book, drinking tea, and playing board games. She also loves being a grandma – she can send the kids home! She is currently a custodian at Steinbach Bible College.

Natasha Klassen and her husband make their home in Morden, and have been married for 8 years. They have three beautiful children – Kylee (4), Carter (2), and Brexton (6 months). Natasha is an avid reader, enjoys playing games, loves spending time with people and hosting in their home. She is definitely her mothers daughter including her dislike for cleaning!

A Heart to Know the Lord – Reflections on 24-7 Men’s Discipleship Weekend

IMG_9806-2

This year’s 24-7 Men’s Discipleship Weekend took place February 18-21 and saw nearly 40 men come together to learn and apply the Word of God and have fun doing it. Arnie Armstrong from Millar College of the Bible was the event’s Bible teacher and focused his time on God’s covenant promises. We consider the event to be a success with both spiritual growth and plenty of fun had by all. David Kruse, who attended for the first time this year, gave us a clearer picture into what all the event had to offer:

The “24-7” men’s discipleship weekend was really good.  Lots of time was dedicated to biblical instruction, but there were still plenty of opportunities for conversation.  Getting to know the other guys is important when you’ve gathered 40 men of various ages from different churches and communities.

The choice of teacher was solid.  Arnie Armstrong opened the Bible as “the Book on Salvation.”  After hearing him explain connections between the Garden of Eden, Egypt, the Tabernacle/Temple, the Promised Land, and the promised Messiah, my faith in the God who orchestrates history was increased.  Seeing how the covenants God made with various people of faith built on each other helped me appreciate what Jesus accomplished, right down to the time of day he died.  Like many men who have grown up in church, I thought I had heard it all before, but these “big picture” observations made me even more impressed with our God.  Arnie’s personal illustrations, combined with his obvious zeal for scriptural truth and his sense of calling to teach it added up to a sense of anticipation about each session.

The Saturday afternoon [metal forging demonstration] workshop with Terry Wiebe was memorable; to have us stand around and listen to his story while he worked with hot metal was a great visual way to learn—iron sharpening iron.  The time in the Octagon was a highlight because we were talking about our own experiences, and caring for each other.  If that wasn’t enough of an exercise in trusting one other, we proceeded from there to a friendly competition involving shotguns [skeet shooting activity]! The schedule was well-paced (though I didn’t get enough sleep!) and the food was excellent. Thanks for all the time, effort, care, and prayer you put in to put it on. -David Kruse
